It was only last week when I met Becky & Russ for their pre wedding shoot @ Gibbon Bridge Hotel and

we were discussing what the weather was going to be like today … Luckily the sun god was on our side!

I started the morning with the bride, Becky & her bridesmaids, whilst waiting for my trusted second shooter,

Mrs Vivienne Myers πŸ˜‰

We spend a few minutes with the groomsmen – when they’d all finally arrived! ha

Then, as it was still quite a nice day, it was outside for the ceremony πŸ™‚

Straight after the ceremony, the bride & groom walked back down the aisle, showered in confetti.

Then, after a quick shot of the page boys, it was time to explore the grounds of Gibbon Bridge.

Luckily, as we’d only been there a week previous, we knew exactly where we were going πŸ˜‰

The evening had loads of entertainment, including a casino & a caricature artist.

After which, Becky & Russ were able to watch a quick edit of the video of the day – It too was emotional.

The sun was shining for Becky & Russell’s pre wedding shoot @ Gibbon Bridge, which was quite lucky,

So little Jamie, along with Mum, Dad & Grandma popped into the studio the other day, for his

first birthday cake smash.

He wasn’t much interested in smashing the cake to be honest, but he was a little star nonetheless.

I arrived at Hornington Manor fairly early on Saturday & Vivienne was already there with the bride &

her bridesmaids.

The venue already looked great & I knew from then, today was going to be a good day, second shooting

the wedding of Liz & Jonny for Vivienne Myers πŸ™‚

As the ceremony was only at 3, and both the bride Β groom were at Hornington, it left lots of

time to get plenty of photographs of the bridal party, the groomsmen & the venue.

I also had time to get the drone out, not for too long though, as it was pretty windy!

Oh & forgot to mention – Hornington Manor is a working sheep farm too, so there were a few little lambs to

photograph too!

So, just before 3 it was time for Liz & her day to enter the ceremony room πŸ™‚

Straight after the ceremony we grabbed a lovely confetti shot.

As you can see there were loads of brilliant little touches.

After the groups, it was time for the wedding breakfast & then speeches.

Then, as the sun was setting we took the bride & groom outside for some more portraits .wedding-hornington-manor-liz-jonny (17)wedding-hornington-manor-liz-jonny (365) wedding-hornington-manor-liz-jonny (18)

About 20 minutes after we were treated to an amazing blue sky, and when the guy running the venue said he had some sparklers –

we knew just what to do!

It was finally then time for the cake cutting, the first dance & a father & daughter dance too!

Another wedding, this time was my first of the year, second shooting for Vivienne Edge Photography.

The day started for me, with a quick trip to the bride’s house to meet Viv & Natalie & grab a few shots.

It was then off the East Riddlesden Hall. To Be honest I thought the satnav had taken me the wrong way,

but I was very happy when I turned into the driveway & saw this gorgeous venue πŸ™‚

wedding-east-riddlesden-hall-natalie-daniel (10) copy 2wedding-east-riddlesden-hall-natalie-daniel (33)

So, as I was at East Riddlesden, it was time to photograph the groosmen πŸ˜‰

After a while, the bride arrives, so it was time to go inside for the ceremony.

We just had to use the gorgeous ceremony room for a shot, before we went outside for the confetti.

As Viv joined the bride & groom on a little drive, I stayed to grab some shots of the other guests, before

the Natalie & Dan arrived back, for the couple & group shots.

WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY | URBAN FOXES | LONDON | APRIL 2017

I’ve always wanted to try & get some images of foxes @ night, and I knew just the man to ask!

So I met up with award winning, wildlife photographer, Jamie Hall, at 9pm in Richmond, the other day,

and off we went to find some!

It took a little bit of patience, not only to wait for the foxes, but to make sure the settings were just right etc @ the

exact moment the fox came into just the right position.

However, for only spending 6 hours there – which did mean it was 3am with a 3hr drive home to home!,

but even in quite short space of time, I’ve got some images I absolutely love πŸ˜‰

It was only a few days ago, since Nikki & Stu’s pre wedding shoot, here @ Langdale Chase Hotel,

although it was nice weather then, we could have never expected such glorious sunshine on a Thursday in March!

As Nikki & Stu were both getting ready @ the hotel, I decided to start with Nikki & her bridesmaids, before

heading down the corridor to see Stu & his groomsmen.

It was a short trip downstairs for the ceremony πŸ™‚

wedding-lake-district-langdale-chase-nikki-stu (384) copy 3

Then everyone headed outside to enjoy the beautiful spring sun, so we decided to use the most of the weather & the grounds

at this point & go & do the bride & groom portraits πŸ˜‰

It was time for the group shots next, which involved having to find a spot where there wasn’t too much sun, but the backdrop’s not

too shabby, so it didn’t really matter! ha

A brilliant confetti shot followed the group shots.

Then it was time to head indoors for the wedding breakfast.

As you can see, during the wedding breakfast the sun was setting & looking brilliant, so it didn’t take much to convince

Nikki & Stu to head to the jetty for a few images with this glorious sunset.

Must say I’m really happy we did, as are Nikki & Stu! πŸ™‚

the first dance! haha

I’ve known Laura for quite some time now, as I’ve photographed her, since before Jamie was born,

but luckily I know Amy too, so although it was raining I knew the girls would be fine inside my studio,

getting some family pictures for Mothers Day.

What I didn’t really think about, but should have done, is how much Amy & Laura would mes about – but

to be honest, those “outtakes” are some of the images I enjoy most from the day πŸ™‚
